Board of Directors
- Cathy Weber-Colvin, President & Membership - Cathy Weber stumbled across Los Cerrillos when she ventured off Hwy 14 to quench her thirst at Mary’s Bar and grab a candy bar at Simoni’s Store. Wandering into the What-Not-Shop and the Cerrillos Turquoise Mining Museum, she was enchanted by the residents’ unique candor and the village’s quiet beauty. Cathy moved to the village in 1992 and soon met Jesse Colvin, a fellow vagabond Southerner. They courted, married, and raised their two children (not necessarily in that order) in Cerrillos. Cathy was a founding board member of Las Candelas de Los Cerrillos which helped in the original acquisition of the County Park that became the Cerrillos Hills State Park. Cathy taught film and math at Santa Fe School for the Arts & Sciences and Monte del Sol High School; worked in Internet Marketing; and owned the Railhouse Restaurant and B&B in Cerrillos. Currently, Cathy L'Raine and Jesse A. are DJs on KMRD.fm in Madrid and create films and media for fun. Together they still ride the wave of every Galisteo basin sunrise through sunset, grateful to call this magical place home.
- Ann Murray, Vice President - Ann Murray was born in Santa Rosa California. She studied at the San Francisco Art Institute where she met her life partner Ross Lockridge. They moved to Cerrillos in 1972. Ann has worked with Ross to protect this historic mining area and to transform it into parklands. She also helped to preserve Hwy 14,the Turquoise Trail National Scenic Byway. Ann paints, and makes ocarinas, an ancient form of sculpted clay flute.
- Janet McVickar, Secretary - I’m a river and desert rat with a varied past as assistant curator of a private art collection (with a BA in Art and Art History), a white-water river guide, and mostly as an archaeologist. I was trained in archaeology at Pecos National Historical Park and worked as an archaeologist for several decades for private environmental companies, federal government, and the state of NM. During that time, I attended graduate school at Northern Arizona University and received a Masters of Science degree in a self-created multidisciplinary program in Archaeology and past climate and environmental studies. I’ve lived in NM for most of my life and consider it my true home. I love running rivers, hiking, gardening, and advocating for my community.
